So, instead of placing novice scullers directly into racing sculls, as I tried
at Craftsbury, Banks assigns newbies to
Alden singles, otherwise known as “
tubbies.” Twice as wide as the racing scull
and shorter in length, they’re almost
impossible to tip over.

Community Rowing separates its
scullers into four classes, with each class
meeting twice a week for six weeks.
Sculling I gives you a taste of the sport
as you get a feel for the oars in the wider
boat. In Sculling II, one slips into a more
slender boat and hones a technique, venturing farther out into the river. For the
Sculling III class, Banks places rowers in
doubles and quads, further enhancing
that seamless stroke and balance as rowers pick up speed. Finally, in Sculling IV,
you transition to a 27-foot racing scull
and get primed to venture out on the
Charles all by your lonesome.
“When students get out of the tubbies
and are able to link together four to five
good strokes, you see this light in their
eyes and a smile plastered on their face.
That’s when I know they’re hooked,”
The inevitable dream is to be able to
go out on your own, weaving through
the river traffic, which can be congested
in the spring and fall when collegiate
and high school crew teams practice.
Gliding along the water and getting a
full-body workout while zipping under
bridges and appreciating the city from
a distance—it’s no wonder scullers are
attracted to this highly physical yet picturesque sport. This is especially true in
the early morning hours, when paddlers
can watch the sun rise and reflect off the
gold dome of the State House on Beacon
Hill and the glass windows of the John
“To be out there with the flat river
sparkling,” Banks says. “I can think of
no better way to start the day.”
